Race Info


Giant redwoods dominate the landscape in our Santa Cruz trail run.  Aside from twisting single track that opens up to expansive roads and paths, you’ll enjoy the ocean breezes pouring in from the Santa Cruz coast. The race will offer everything from river crossings to high ridges with aid stations every 5-6 miles for refueling before tackling the next beautiful, albeit strenuous, section.  Bring your families and stay after the race to enjoy Henry Cowell park where we’ll have post race food fit for a trail running king or queen!

Parking at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is $10.00. There is limited parking along Highway 9 outside of the park. To save some money, we recommend you carpool from Felton (minutes away from the park) or Santa Cruz.
